Yellow sisters are known for being self-assured. It is often commented that they take great care with their appearance, and have been described as flamboyant in thus similar to the Green Sisters. Yellows are often thought by some other Ajahs members to be arrogant. Some Yellows also believe that theirs is the only Ajah with a useful purposes, and view the other Ajahs as adjuncts to their own.
Healing is a Talent that not all Aes Sedai possess, but it is considered a requirement for entry into the Yellow Ajah. The best Healers are always Yellow sisters, and it is said they will try to Heal anything.
In reality the Yellow Ajah Head, Suana, also stated that it is not only the ability to Heal which marks a Yellow sister, but rather a desire to help others and resolve problems, so a Yellow sister need not only to be skillful in the Healing Weaves but she needs also to be passionate about fixing things. Indeed, there are many skilled Healers outside the Yellow Ajah, but the best and most skillful ones are said to always be Yellow.
Until recently it was thought that stilling could not be Healed, but Nynaeve al'Meara discovered a way. It was also traditional for only Spirit, Water and Air to be used in Healing but with the discovery by Nynaeve that all Five Powers can be used, a whole new way of Healing has opened up.
Many Yellows seem eager to learn this new way of Healing, but about the same again have no desire whatsoever to change from the traditional weaves.
It is an open secret that all Ajahs except the White have eyes-and-ears networks, but it is generally believed that the Yellow's is a "pitiful thing" as there is nothing of Healing that a non-Aes Sedai can contribute.[verify]
Recently the head of the Yellow Ajah's eyes-and-ears network has been Narenwin Barda.
The First Weaver of the Yellow Ajah is Suana Dragand. The Sitters in the Hall of the Tower for the Yellow were Doesine Alwain, Magla Daronos and Romanda Cassin; the Yellow Ajah leadership sustained heavy losses in the Last Battle, sparing only Magla Daronos, and the subsequent replacements for Doesine Alwain and Romanda Cassin are unknown.
